St Bishops Stopford School in Enfield have been having a water-filled time! Last week they held their water festival and made a real splash. The day was run by the geography club who shared their knowledge with other students on how to make every drop count. They performed their water rap and took people on a journey through the hidden water secrets of different food types. To wrap up they will be delivering a water-themed assembly to the rest of the school, before term is up.
Not only have St Bishops been busy with spreading the water-saving message far and wide but they also took part in Empty Classroom Day! They took to the great outdoors and ventured to Walton on the Naze, where they explored the coastal processes and used transects to collect data – and they look like they had a great time doing it.
